Friday News Flash #3

Happy Friday! Where has the week gone?? I have not even posted once?!?!? Busy…Busy…Busy! I was going to say that I don’t even have anything to show for it, but I realized that I do, I’m just not ready to show it yet! :-) So, I’ll just share what I’ve found in the few minutes I stole took to look around and see what everyone else had going on this week. First, I forgot to enter over at the CSI Project and their theme this week was spray paint!!! How could I forget that??!?! I’m known in my family and among IRL friends as the “Queen of Spray Paint”…I was covering things up and making them knew with spray paint way  before it was “cool” and when the colors were the primaries, black, white and primer gray! Oh well, next week is Pottery Barn Inspired! Maybe I’ll remember that! You can see all the other projects at CSI Here:


And now, for the rest of the news:

News FlashFamily News 

Most of my busyness this week has either been cleaning or family oriented. The cleaning and organizing will be a post next week!

My Mother in law had her surgery and is doing great, the doctor feels that they got everything and her lymph nodes are clear! We are thankful and rejoicing in that! My daughter turns 15 and wants a book to study for her learners permit…scary! We had a bonus 3 days with my oldest daughter and grandsons because their air conditioning died in the middle of the hottest summer I can remember here! While waiting the weekend for someone to check it out, they packed up and came to Gram’s House! Throw in trips to the orthodontist, chiropractor and grocery store and it’s been a rather full week!

Parties and Giveaways!

Since my focus has been on cleaning and organizing, this party came at just the right time for me…to visit, not to participate, since I don’t have anything finished yet! You still have time to enter here:

Organize and Decorate Everything

There is a giveaway going on and some great links to check out! Here are a couple that I know I would like to do at home:

I browsed a few linky parties and these things caught my eye:

I really want to make some of these! I have seen them everywhere, don’t remember the first one that I saw, and since this one popped up today, I’m sharing it! :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
